Biography / Aakash Nihalani

The works of New York based artist Aakash Nihalani have the ability to captivate the viewer’s attention at first glance. Through using techniques such as bright, bold lines as a method to create three-dimensional surfaces and to create repetitive patterns that have a visually pleasing aesthetic, he crafts complex movements and space by the placement of a line. Aakash Nihalani’s works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

The appeal of Nihalani's works is down to the interchange between the way he uses abstract methods to portray conventional shapes. When viewed from a distance, the image seems to show a geometric picture but after a second take, a more multifaceted work of art is revealed, through the use of organised placing of lines in certain angles, he interprets both movement and depth in a refined manner.

The individual is given a moment to step away from the conformities of reality, this new atmosphere/space presented to the individual allows for new inspiration to produce from an alternative perspective. Aakash Nihalani’s works can be found across New York City on various areas and various structures.
